Over €18,000 for for Multi-use games area in Clonakilty

Deputy Jim Daly has confirmed funding for a multi-use games area in Deasy’s car park Clonakilty.

Minister Ring has provided €18,149 in capital funding to Clonakilty Town Council for the sporting project.

“This is a further allocation of funding for sporting facilities which are specifically designed to boost participation in sport. This is one of nine projects that will benefit from almost half a million euros in funding, on a provisional basis.

“All the projects are designed specifically to encourage people to take part in sport, or to try out a new sporting activity. They include playing surfaces, outdoor gym equipment and floodlighting. These follow on from allocations to other projects announced at the start of the month.

“Although this is low-level funding on a small-scale, I hope that each investment will bring about real improvements in people’s lifestyles, health and well-being.

“Minister Ring hopes to be in a position to announce further allocations in the coming weeks.

“It’s important to note that this is not a new round of the Sports Capital Programme, but is a targeted measure for local authority facilities.
